Haha…quite fun to read an american’s impression of spanish food culture – especially that bit about tax and tips (since you are about the only country in the world who does it like that…so who’s strange here :p).
here in germany dinner starts as early as 5 am…so whenever i visit spain (like once a year cuz my best friends lives in madrid)..i just can’t handle it and will buy snacks to make it through the day without starving.

Didn’t you know? America’s the only country in the world! 😉

I find it fascinating to see my country and my culture to someone else’s eyes! We do love to share our food, and I had never really noticed the splitting the bill with cash thing as being unusual, I guess it’s something that comes natural to us xD Glad you do enjoy Spain tho 🙂

Isn’t it interesting? Our own cultures are so normal to us that we sometimes forget that it might be strange to someone else!

It is incredibly fascinating! I would love to find out what other things of Spanish culture are strange to foreigners! But then again, some customs from other Spanish regions seem really odd to me, so may not be only a country thing but deeper within our roots 🙂 oh well 😀

Finding those little cultural differences are my favorite part of travel!

This is so great! Lived in Spain twice and always try to explain Spanish dining to Americans and it is very much a foreign concept to them hahaha! Loved this article!
